Ikat (See Jane Reminisce)

As I reflected on our wedding day a year ago, I couldn't help but think of the honeymoon that followed a few months later.  Bali was completely magical and as I browsed through the recent J. Crew catalog, the memories flooded my thoughts.  While many of my memories are mere moments in time, I love that every time I see an ikat print, I think of my honeymoon.  Ikat is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that is native to Indonesia and there are many beautiful variations.  It's been super popular in the design world over the last few years and I love that I've been seeing it pop into fashion pieces here and there for the past couple seasons.

PS Thank you all so so much for the sweet comments and congratulations on the anniversary.  I can't believe it's been a year!  Time sure flies.

  5. The clutch is beautiful. I also like the chair,but it seems problematic to buy furniture in a trendy print.

  21. I love it. I just learned what it was called from this great Refinery 21 post about the correct names for various prints that seem to get lumped together and generally called "ethnic prints."

    We have some gorgeous red ikat skinny jeans at Anthro right now that I want so badly.
